50 Cent is on the run in the action-packed video for “My Life,” the new single off his fifth album Street King Immortal. The hip-hop titan and his mentor Eminem play fugitives, running from the law as helicopters chase them. The Rich Lee-directed clip, which co-stars Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, was inspired by life in the spotlight. Super middleweight boxing contender Andre Dirrell also makes a cameo.
“The video is kind of abstract; it’s kind of metaphoric in a sense, like the paranoia of feeling like we’re being chased,” Eminem told MTV News on set in Detroit last month. “Whether it’s true or not, it’s kind of how we feel. It’s kind of a metaphor for us running for our lives. Personal lives and from fame, everything that goes with the game.”
Street King Immortal is due February 26.
